Sorry fells, going to have to flex on you motherfuckers...

Yo. I hate to be that guy, but the first time I ever fired a shotgun, I shot it off in the house on accident. I blew a hole through my wifes dresser and shredded all her clothes in that drawer. Two th

That fights been lost already. Better to put the effort towards holding the borders so the disease doesn’t spread. 

NRA has already cut bait too. Will be here exploiting the gray area for the sake of fighting the fight as best I can.

My lady’s lil sis is doing a multi month road trip

 

any ideas for a lil revolver for a small gal? Something in 38?

Budget is always the detail in question. Smith and Wesson or Colts are safe bets but for a pretty penny at $600+ unless it's like a 642 airweight.

Trouble shooting help.

 

I have an AK 47 I'm having problems with. When I fire the rifle the spent cartridge is getting hung up in the ejection port. I have to manually clear it and then the next round cycles in with no problem. I disassembled the rifle to inspect the parts for burs that might be causing any mechanical hang ups and everything looks to be moving fine. 

 

This has to be something stupid im overlooking.

Try different ammo. Could be that there isn’t enough charge to cycle it, but I’m not an AK guy. Maybe @6Penniescan help?

@Dirty_habiT

I never even considered the magazine. They are metal but I never checked their condition. Can you ask your buddy if it might possibly be an issue with the spring? That's a dirt cheap fix I could entertain.

 

@misteraven

I was told the same thing by a family member. I switched up ammo and same results. Im not really an AK guy either but when some one wants to sell an underfolder for a couple bucks you kinda gotta go for it.

Think with AK's, especially the real issued ones and not the new custom Gucci guns is its a cheap ass gun. It was designed to be produced easily and on a massive scale. Stamped out, assembled and the tolerances are so loose that getting sand and mud won't jam them up like something like match grade fitting. They don't usually fuck up, but when they do, they're fucked.

What brand/model is it? That can narrow down to common problems others face. 

Check: feed ramp quality/construction.

Magazine spring tension.

Projectile type ( my WASR hates JHP but my Norinco eats them right up) 

Is it brand new or well used? Recoil spring may be too strong if new and needs broke in or too weak if it's old as dog shit.  

 

Could be a more serious matter like your gas port diameter, or canted/burred gas block.  Or how the magazine release was riveted into the weapon, it doesnt lock at the proper level to reliably feed rounds. 

 

When it does eject properly, is the ejection strong or weak? (How far does it fling the brass)

Can someone ( @misteraven) recommend a brand of sling.  I realize this is kinda a "basic" item but I'd like to get a nice quality/good one for our new shotgun.

 

Also... tritium sights.  We were told the rail system on our shotgun won't support a light.  Can someone talk about the rail system on shotguns (or other guns) and detail how to choose what can be attached to it?  I realize I can youtube this stuff but I would rather hear it from you guys.

Figured out how to remove the magazine plug on our shotgun after watching a few videos online.  None that covered our model specifically, but I got a good enough general idea from watching other guns have their plugs removed.  I saw videos of guys w/ extended magazines on their guns.

Depending on what type of shotgun you got, you can get a small clamp with a section of picatinny rail for you lighting system. I have a Remington 870 and use this one from Mesa Tactical. It does the job. Be sure to loctite the screws. With this system you can get a simple flashlight mount and you’re good to go. Likely there are better options out there this is just the one I use. tritium sights don’t have anything to do with a flashlight they are the little glowing dots on the iron sights. I suggest an army/navy surplus for a sling. You can get some smoking deals.

Read up on the four basic rules of firearm safety. Until you can rattle them off by memory, don’t handle that gun. 
 

After you get past that intro step, I suggest you call around and find someone that knows how to work that gun to come over and do some dry run weapon manipulation with you. If you’re able, go out somewhere that’s safe to shoot. Put some rounds through it so you know what it feels like to fire it. Practice safely loading and unloading. Get a feel for those range and for the recoil. Not a time to burn through ammo, but a dozen or two shots is worth it. When you’re done, learn how to clean it. 
 

Sling is a personal choice and assume you’ll hear a different answer from everyone. That said, first off you need to verify your mounting points because likely you’ll need to install those as well. Most slings are quick release attachments but doubt a shotgun is setup to have them unless it’s a tactical shotgun. Next you’ll need to decide between single point or a more traditional two point sling. I’d go with two point if it were me. Personally I have a bunch of slings and different types, but an easy choice is a two point sling from Vickers / Blue Force. I’d get the padded one cause a loaded long gun starts to bite into your shoulder after a while. https://www.blueforcegear.com/slings/weapon-slings
 

And yeah as noted in the comment above, there’s a crazy assortment of aftermarket stuff you can get. Anything your gun didn’t come with can likely be added on. I’d definitely add a light to it as a home defense gun. As mentioned before, a quality light and I’d also add a pressure switch to it since walking around with it just turned on makes you a target. I’d also get someone qualified to swap the sights to tritium and help zero it for you.
